What are ways of saying "I'm looking forward to..."?
I'm looking for ways to say "I'm looking forward to x". A friend told me to use "Disfruto pensando en", for example, "Disfruto pensando en el finde" to mean "I'm looking forward to the weekend".
Is this a good way to say it? I just wanted to check, since it's something I find myself wanting to say a lot but it sounds strange to me because in my head I'm translating it to English ("I enjoy thinking about...").
Can anyone recommend other ways of saying what you're looking forward to?
Any help much appreciated, Rangi
Well here are a few but which is more colloquial I will leave to the native speakers.
To look forward to
Esperar con ansia, esperar con impaciencia.
However, with more context this can change, for example,
We are looking forward to the journey, el viaje nos hace mucha ilusión
I am really looking forward to the holidays, estoy deseando que lleguen las vacciones.
I like 'Tener ganas de ...'.
Tengo ganas de verte
I'm looking forward to seeing you
Tengo ganas de leer el periódico
I'm looking forward to reading the newspaper
Thanks for the answers guys, I'm going to put these into practice.
One last question - what do you think the most common way of saying "I'm looking forward to the weekend" is in Spain? It's something I find myself wanting to say quite often!
